Mosquito Shield is the leader in professional mosquito and tick control. We take a three-pronged approach to mosquito and tick protection: kill current pests; mask the CO2 that attracts new pests; and repel pests from your home. Our proprietary Mosquito Protection Blend (MPB) represents more than 15 years of product research and development, and our FlexBlend spray technology maximizes the effectiveness of MPB.
Mosquito Shield gives you several options for pest control. We can help by killing harboring mosquitoes, no-see-ums, black flies and other flying insects along with ticks, and we simultaneously repel airborne insects and prevent new pest infestations. Our treatment schedules are flexible so that you see the best results during peak mosquito and tick season. We add our Rain Shield blend to each spray so that treatments withstand light to moderate rain storms.
Our licensed technicians are trained in product application, mosquito and tick behavior, and species identification. We educate our techs to “think like a mosquito” while evaluating properties to find problem areas. They will also study weather and property conditions to take a holistic approach to your pest control treatment.
More than 90 percent of Mosquito Shield and Tick Shield customers reuse us season after season. We carry an unconditional satisfaction guarantee (which we’re happy to say mostly collects dust!). If for any reason you’re unsatisfied after your first visit, we’ll give you a full refund.
Once you contact Mosquito Shield, you can expect a couple things:
- Your first visit is scheduled within five business days of signing up for our treatments.
- You’ll get an email before and after each technician visit.
- The treatment will be applied to your common use areas like pools, decks, patios and swing sets, and it’ll be applied to wherever the mosquitos and ticks breed and live.
- After your first visit, you’ll see a significant reduction in insects, usually within 24 hours of the first treatment.
- A licensed technician will come to your property every two weeks, depending on the mosquito population and weather. Treatments can be effective when done either 10 days apart or even 17 days apart.
Mosquito Shield was founded in September 2001. We’ve all been there, trying to enjoy our homes’ outdoors, only to have our limited time outside ruined by unwanted mosquitos and insects. It was clear that the mosquito control products available at the time—body sprays, candles, mosquito magnets—weren’t up to the task. Frustrated with these options, we set out to formulate a true solution. The following 15 years were spent researching the science behind the mosquito life cycle, testing products, application methods and treatment frequency. We developed our own proprietary blend, Mosquito Protection Blend (MPB), that lasts for weeks and gets stronger as mosquito season progressed. Our MPB is made with natural oils that rid you of current mosquitos and repel future unwanted guests. Combining MPB with our FlexBlend application technology has put us at the forefront of residential mosquito control.
Mosquitoes can be disruptive, to say the least. They are bothersome pests that can easily ruin your backyard barbecues and time spent tending to the landscape on your property. They not only cause itchy bites that might persist for several days, but also may carry serious diseases like West Nile virus. If you’re tired of dealing with mosquitoes around your property, mosquito spraying provides more relief than any store-bought mosquito control product in Portage.
Mosquito spraying service from Mosquito Shield is a simple three-step process designed to quickly get rid of mosquitoes living around your home and prevent more from invading in the future. The team at Mosquito Shield has developed a system that works quickly to eradicate mosquitoes while simultaneously shielding your property from future invasions. This process is not only more effective than anything you might find in a store, but also available at a much better value.
Why Mosquito Spraying?
You have likely tried at least one or two store-bought products to keep mosquitoes away from you, such as citronella candles, mosquito netting, and canned bug spray. While some of these types of products may be helpful during a visit to a local park, they aren’t enough to provide consistent protection for your whole property. At best, they may provide a few hours of relief in a small area.
In contrast, Mosquito Shield offers robust protection for your entire property that lasts all mosquito season long. Mosquitoes are typically most active from April through September, and that is usually when people want to get outside to enjoy it. Instead of feeling trapped in your home this summer, choosing Mosquito Shield for mosquito spraying in the Portage area can allow you to enjoy the outdoors around your home with peace of mind.
Common Questions about Our Mosquito Services
At Mosquito Shield, we understand that you probably have many questions about how we provide our mosquito services. Here are some of the most frequently asked questions about our service to help you determine if it is right for you:
Q: How does our system work?
A: We use a unique three-step process to prevent mosquito bites, eliminate the mosquitoes living around your home, and prevent more mosquitoes from entering.
Q: How does Mosquito Shield prevent mosquito bites?
A: Mosquitoes detect people and pets to bite by the CO2 they exhale. CO2 masking is the first step of our process, and it effectively hides you from mosquitoes, greatly reducing the occurrence of mosquito bites on your property.
Q: How does our spray work?
A: Your Mosquito Shield technician will apply our spray all around your home, paying extra attention to the areas where mosquitoes tend to gather. The spray kills mosquitoes on contact and adheres to organic surfaces, creating an invisible barrier that deters other mosquitoes from entering.
Q: How soon will I see results?
A: We understand that if you choose to undergo mosquito spraying for your property you want to see clear results as soon as possible. The majority of Mosquito Shield customers report noticeable declines in mosquito activity around their homes in just the first 24 hours after starting with our service.
Q: Won’t the rain wash away the barrier?
A: You don’t need to worry about inclement weather interfering with your protection from mosquitoes. We add Rain Shield to our spray to ensure it holds effectively even during the rain.
Q: How does Mosquito Shield offer season-long protection?
A: The third phase of our system is consistent reapplication of our spray. We typically visit our customers every 10 to 17 days, and each spray treatment strengthens their barrier for consistent season-long protection against mosquitoes.
